Universal Music – Marketing Managers (Germany)

Universal Music is looking to fill two full-time roles within the international marketing team based at its Berlin office.

Many of Universal Music’s most successful releases are national productions. Newcomers are established, successful artists are supported in their creative development and German acts become hot topics in Europe.

Amongst other things, this is the task of international marketing, which is the successful commercialisation and placement of the nationally contracted artists abroad.

Universal Music Group artists include Adel Tawil, Lxandra, Alvaro Soler, André Rieu, Beatrice Egli, Christina Stürmer, DJ Ötzi, Helene Fischer, Jan Delay, Lana Del Rey, Lena, Lewis Capaldi, Nico Santos, Placebo, Rea Garvey, Sido & Savas, Sportfreunde Stiller, Sunrise Avenue, The BossHoss, Unheilig, Volbeat, Woodkid, Yello and many more.
